't get enough, thought we were more awake than we were. abc's ron claiborne took part in that experiment. >> reporter: my eyes are open, but what you can't tell in this experiment is i am actually asleep. every day, 250,000 americans fall asleep while driving. like this woman who was videotaped seemingly nodding off at the wheel in denver. sleep-deprived drivers are blamed for thousands of crashes every year, but many times it's not that obvious. scientists say there is something called microsleep. where you can fall asleep for just a few seconds without realizing it, sometimes with your eyes open. hi, i'm ron claiborne. we traveled to liberty mutual research institute outside of boston where they study microsleep. >> a very brief transition from wakefulness new sleep. it can last up to 20, 30 seconds. you are waking. you are asleep. >> i would drive while sleep deprived. to mimic conditions of people who do not get enough sleep. i stayed up all night. >> i have been up 24 hours. >> at the lab i was looked up to a brain wave monitor. i thought i could handle the driving. i feel okay now.
participants in last night's pac-12 championship. '99 they beat ucla 38-31. they beat stanford 17-9. ron dayne was named mvp of both those games. a whole lot of man running the football. >> gus: heisman trophy winner. >> charles: we saw his coach in pregame. i asked coach about him once. he said i didn't get him lathered up until about carry 30. >> gus: tony alvarez stopping in the booth before the game. he looked happy, healthy and positive. there's a man i think left the game of college football way too soon. there he is. >> charles: in terms of the coaching, yes. still the athletic director, wisconsin. so many people you know have rang his phone over the years since he got out of coaching because they know that man would build them a winner. people probably have forgotten just how down wisconsin really was in football when he took over the program and built them into the national power they are year in and year out now. one of the great coaches in college football history. >> gus: i asked coach alvarez if he would ever consider going back to coaching. he had a twinkle in his eye as he walke
are cnn contributor and democratic strategist maria cardona and republican strategist ron bonjin. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> ron, i'll start with you. reid and mcconnell, they really are the focus in the senate. in the house, it's speaker john boehner. i've got to ask you, is his job on the line if republicans balk at any deal that's reached? >> no, not at all. speaker boehner is extremely strong. his conferences support him and knows that he's been in a tough position trying to negotiate the fiscal deal with the president. he's been doing this for weeks, month, working on this deal. and you know, they gave it a shot. they tried their best. the house, you know, house republicans wouldn't go for it. and said, you know, it's up to the senate. and once -- if the senate passes something, the house now will consider it. so i -- i do think that the speaker is in a very strong position. and besides, this is a very difficult job. i don't see many republicans standing up and wanting to take speaker boehner on. not many other people could do the job like speaker bo
. then at 8:00 a.m. eastern, senator ron johnson and bob corker. president obama issued a warning on "meet the press." >> on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is starting to pick up. >> but after it was all said and done, leaders on the senate floor couldn't get anything done, at least not yet. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know, i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> this morning, we've been trying to come up with some counteroffice to my friend's proposal. we haven't been able to do that. i've had a number of conversations with the presid
tea party senators like ron johnson, mike lee, marco rubio, pat toomey rand paul geoff flake, geoff fisher. perhaps his worst was backing todd aiken after todd aikenenths "legitimate rape," he donated to aiken's come pain but his attempts to remake the republican party in his conservative image has errands him actually the scorn of more moderate republicans. washington post columnist jennifer rubin wrote today, quote, "demint has been a destructive force, thread anything to primary colleagues, resisting all deals and offering very little in the way of attainable legislation." she's right. the legislation that he backed was pretty far out there. for example, he pushed a bill that would make it illegal to discuss abortion on the internet, to even discuss it. he wanted to make it illegal for gay people or unmarried women having premarital sex to be teachers at all. he led the opposition to obamacare. he said if he could stop the law from passing, it would quote break the president. he put a hold on the national women's history museum. governor nikki haley

and deductions as part of the so-called fiscal cliff. ron in indiana. caller: the first young fellow. the question that i wanted to ask. everybody is talking about raising taxes on the job creators and they will not create jobs. these bush tax cuts have been in place. how long will it take to see the job? host: what do you think of the deductions? you think they have been a part of the tax code lot of that americans cannot do without them? caller: some of them need to be part of the negotiations. middle class people, we cannot. forget them. but the upper class, they get the big tax cut. the middle class does not hardly see these deductions. and especially those that give you these deductions, they give you loopholes. host: let's go to curtis dubay to get a response to that. our caller was talking about if you have the means to hire someone that has the ability to look through the deductions you can get a much better break. is it fair? guest: if you do not have someone to show you how to do it, it can be hard to take them. but for the most part, most people will take the standard dedu
have asked. we will move on to ron on the independent line. caller: in my opinion, hillary clinton or any other right person being an office would probably be the worst possible case scenario for this country and i think it is time that a normal person be elected to office them da. host: ron from indiana. from facebook, john says -- james says -- diana says -- here are some of the twitter comments we have received. bill says -- and biff -- and steve says -- and finally, jim says -- robert, north carolina, the republican line. caller: after this term of four years with the democrats, i don't think she has a chance. i am a business owner. four more years of this, i will be out of business. host: what kind of business do you have? caller: bulldozer's. host: how has business been over the last couple of years? caller: bad. i am barely staying in business. i do not know what to look forward to. i can hardly stay in business. the democrats in this country i think is wanting to kill us. business people, i cannot stand much more of it. host: robert on the republican line. linda is in texas
to her who did not survive. >> our colleague ron barber, same thing. this epidemic of gun violence, the fact that in my congressional district, i can tell you right now where gun shops are. they're not having a problem unloading those guns in a manner of speaking to young people who come and purchase them or acquire them somehow. we've got to deal with this. it's going to take not just congressional leadership. it's actually going to take presidential leadership to open this conversation. we haven't done that. >> kenji, i want to ask you you about the second aemt. people know i have a scandal obsession. there was a great line in the film where this week where there's conversation about i bet you stopped after the second aemt. he was talking to the conservative. what does the second amendment tell us about gun ownership? >> the second amendment says a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state. the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> the big debate about the clause where -- if you go back to what parker is doing in grammar
representative ron kirk is also on the mentioned list in terms of retiring. host: but none of those formally? guest: not official . host: has anybody said i'm sticking around? guest: that would be kind of unproforma but i think kathleen seebluss said she would like to stay because of the implementation of the health care law. no one announces that. they kind of get the word out there. there have been some talk about whether eric holder will retire but he told people he would like to stay for a year or certainly until september when we're likely to get a new f.b.i. director. host: if you're not leaving immediately at the end of the first term are you expected to stay for all four years of the second term or is there another dated where turnover occurs? guest: the way i understand it is if president obama has told people if they do stay he wants them to stay for at least a year because he doesn't want to spend all of his time filling these jobs. so the rule of thumb is if people are still in place at the end of january they'll probably stay for the entire year. host: we're taking your calls an

next guest actually agrees with the democrats for once. and thinks that this bill is a mistake. ron meyer is spokesman of american majority action, a national conservative organization. and i just want to make sure that i let people know that you don't agree with the democrats, it's not like you're switching sides here. you just have a lot of criticism of speaker boehner. you haven't really appreciated the way that he's handled these negotiations. what do you make of this plan b? >> well, i have some news to break on it actually. i talked to some really good sources in the house of representatives and staff members and they think that this plan has no shot to pass the house, that it doesn't have the conservative votes. doesn't have the republican votes. there is a growing number of republicans from us straighted with speaker boehner. the problem is not tax revenue. the problem is spending. we've increased spending a trillion dollars in the last five years and we can't have enough revenue to make up for that. we would have to have the biggest tax revenue increase ever as far as the r
in the house of represent tifrs. dennis kucinich and ron paul. president obama ordered more drone strikes in his first term than president bush did in his combined terms. the strike just last week killed a senior leader in pakistan near the border of afghanistan and the two congress men want president obama to release all the information and the data and detail that he ordered against many terrorists. representative kucinich joins me live. welcome back and nice to see you. >> good to be with you. >> the judiciary did address this, but me why you are challenging the president. >> it's not about challenging the president, but up holding the constitution of the united states. no president has the right to launch missile attacks on another country without congressional approval. no president has the right to take away someone's right to due process of law. they happen to be an american citizen abroad and we asked for the legal justification. that's what we are looking at. three years is a long time to wait. 300 drone strikes is enough time to say to the white house, where is your justificatio

adhered to the u.s. constitution. rep. ron paul was giving his retirement speech and to his credit, to his credit -- to me makes a lot of sense. i believe him when he says our liberties are being weakened. i am so sorry that they tried to discredit him. he makes a lot of sense. he bases his thinking on the founding fathers and their intentions. i am not very clear of the fiscal cliff. i understand that we are in trouble. the middle east situation that is going on is a can of worms. with our economic downturn, i am not so sure about that yet. even things like that mortgages, which is true. >> are you working? caller: i am unemployed, but i do? taxes. i stopped getting it in march of last year because of my health issues. >> unemployment is going to end, that is one of the expiring provisions. new castle, pa.. democratic line, jeanne. >> my main comments, i think that the problems, one of the main problems is the grover norquist pledge that the officials, mainly republicans, have taken. it should be deemed unconstitutional. no elected official should be allowed to take any kind of pledge. wh
, white house's suggested deadline for resolving major changes to the tax code and entitlements. ron has this to say about the fiscal cliff -- let's hear from ray in philadelphia, a republican caller. caller: good morning. i think the republicans have to get out a better message. if we realize we ran out of money for all the programs we are having, what is going to happen in another 10 years? what happens is, these people earning more than $250,000, they worked from the age of 18 to move up the ladder and finally reached success. the pint the republicans have to make is it is time to lower taxes on middle-class families. it has reached a pinnacle. it is time to may be lower taxes on the middle-class. we have to cut spending because the economy is in such bad positicondition. democrats keep pointing out that 98% of businesses are less than $250,000. 98% of people working in those businesses -- with that went to ink in a mechanic's shop or a car dealer? would want to work in a small grocery or in a big chain may be making more money as a manager? we have to have an economy that is based on

remember, president bush doing the no new taxes. also remember, ron redmond agreed to tax increases five times. this is a relatively recent occurs within the republican party. it was less economically oriented than it was in a temper political gain. they thought it was a way to gain political power rather than a reason to be economically. on this issue. you said he was a prominent republican. bruce today no longer considers himself to be a republican. he is outspoken about some of the economic craziness that has come from the party. he is what i would call an economic rationalist. host: stating the obvious on our twitter page. john boehner does not know how to herd cats. independent line. good morning. caller: good morning. i have a comment on the entitlement programs, spending. i believe social security and medicare programs do not need cutting. that is the elderly's safety net so that they do not end up destitute and without adequate medical care. other spending and entitlement, i believe, does need spending -- cutting. i will read you some numbers here. my numbers will be a little lac
. the others are ron paul libertarians and the fair tax people and you mix them all together. when they vote, they vote conservative republican. they need to be at the table. we need to talk about it. does the country want a flat tax? "we all like john boehner." i grew up and john boehner's district in ohio. he is a very practical man. he is a deal maker. he wants to sit down at the table and come up with a solution. he is being pressured by the tea party. host: maverick on twitter says -- host: what do you think? guest: that sounds strange to me. host: congress needs to do something at this point. is he remove himself from the equation? guest: he is saying, "here's my offer." i think john boehner is doing that. he didn't have the votes he needed. host: republican senator thinks the president wants to go off the fiscal cliff. guest: i said earlier myself. in terms of who gets hurt the most, i think it's clear the republicans can be hurt the most. they put themselves in that situation. let's go offto say the fiscal cliff. unemployment or other benefits, veterans benefits, etc. it would be cy
this tragedy occurred. >> ron whaoerl is a former d.c. homicide detective. good morning to you. you put a series of thoughts toegt that create one theory. go ahead, explain that and then we'll talk about that. >> first of all we are dealing with a person as everybody has been saying that is possibly mentally ill. not only is he possibly mentally ill he's a very cold and calculated killer. let's look at some of the evidence that we've heard about already, bill real quickly the police have said that they have very good evidence. what could that very good evidence be? what i think it is, i think on that computer hard drive what they will find once they are able to get into it is that this guy had been researching a lot of the activity surrounding the aurora, colorado shooting and specifically the mindset of james holmes who was the shooter who had a very similar mindset to this guy lanza last week. bill: are you saying that, or do you have that on authority? >> no, no, no -- bill: that is your theory. >> this is what i believe. this is just a theory. this is what i believe. if you look at

am grateful for the opportunity to be here for many reasons. to my not old but longtime friend, ron serenson, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, we got acquainted on the fifth floor of the cannon building. this is too high class a g roup. was rightn's office next to the closet. and he performed admirably. his wardrobe consisted, no unlike congressman coleman's, of the wide lapel jacket, much like a horse blanket. they have two -- to havae two gillman of the caliber and the kind of public servants they work -- two of that caliber to lead the u.s. historical society, congratulations on the anniversary and what you are doing with this institution. i do not know of anything more important than to preserve history, to apply that history to our future generations. mr. scruggs is here. here is a man who has made some contribution to that effort. the memorial he was responsible for leading, it would not have been built without him.

their heads. >> exactly. i talked to coach ron rivera after the panthers' game last night, and they left charlotte not knowing. they were ready to defer whatever the chiefs decided to do. they didn't even know the a alternati alternatives. all they knew it was undecided and they'd find out when they got to kansas city and they did. >> whatever you think about him as a quarterback, the way brady quinn conducted himself before that game and then after the game especially, that's real leadership. forget what happens on the football field. the way he carried himself yesterday was remarkable. >> and his comments about relationships and how we're more caught up in our phones than we are the people in front of us, that's something, you need to print it out, laminate it and carry it around. we get so distracted by the devices in our pockets, we don't pay attention to people who are with us. >> and the chiefs did win the game. but as you said, the only thought right now is for that three-month-old girl named zoe who's going to grow up without her parents. we'll try to talk about some football if
more comfortable with. there are other changes they might be more comfortable with. host: ron has this suggestion from our twitter page. guest: that is a term we heard. when the cut health care, someone will be bearing the cut.t of that kin that is similar to the concept of those care organizations. they also include quality metrics as part of the contract, where they look at people's outcomes. one way to prevent against the u.s. skimping on care. host: this from sasha -- guest: that is one proposal that gets floated by democrats. medicare part d bargains for drugs. i do not know -- i do not think it would be a cure all, the one proposal that would fix everything. democrats think it would reduce the cost of medicare. host: is there a plan b? guest: we have seen them as the january 1 deadline before and get 30-day extensions. at some point they were working without an extension. medicare told doctors to hold off on submitting your claims for a little bit. that is a situation we have ended up in before. if we're talking months, we're talking about big pay cuts for medicare doctors.
exists. people like former presidential candidate ron paul, his son rand paul -- them and a bunch of other people disagree with that. they are intended to bring that view into the marketplace of ideas. i am here to tell you that that is not where the center of gravity is. right now, america does have a unique role in the world, we are the guarantor of security in several regions and a lot of countries depend on that. if we're going to change that whole system and diversified power and take america out of the role of policing the world, that is a possibility, but i do not see it happening. host: a question. if the president was not watching in real time, the national security adviser should have been. why didn't he tell the president? guest: we know the president was told about it, he was aware of it as it was going on. the first wave of attacks happened in a wave of 30 minutes. there is a lot of unanswered questions, not just what the president should be doing, but what about the national security adviser? these are two men who have responsibility for the whole world. what about t
. i do want to express my appreciation to democratic senator ron wyden and chairman paul ryan for recognizing that a solution must be found to get this country on stable ground. we as americans must applaud and encourage bipartisan solutions. we must strengthen our social safety net and ensure its long-term viability. of course, getting our debt under control impacts more than what we do domestically. it impacts to protect our homeland safe and free and empower leadership on the international stage. the 10th district has a history and tradition of thoughtful global outlook and a special appreciation for the positive role american leadership can and must play in the world. this is a responsibility that i fully embraced and advanced. i have been honored to work with the ar menian community -- armenian community here in this congress and i thank ken and all the people at all saints church and the armenian cultural center for their support in educating me about their committee issues and concerns. i also want to recognize the bahai community in the 10th district which helped me bu
health care because they endangered the life of the job, could the secretary ron those who provide abortions a business? i'll answer that for each too. in answer is yes. i believe that this language would allow the secretary to control what physicians prescribe, what health care patients can access. is there a single person in this room who thinks that the secretary should have that kind of authority, whether it is a republican or democrat? i have a bill, 6320, which repeals this clearly dangerous provision. a plan to reintroduce this bill in the 113th congress. i hope that this committee in a bipartisan fashion can work together in this effort. look, i do not know whether this section was an intentional provision or an unintended consequence. i would rather like to think it was an unintended consequence. this is the thing you get in at 2700-page bill that you have to pass and then finally find out what is in it. maybe you like it, and maybe you will not. this clearly is a provision where any secretary of health and human services can pretty much determined what the quality of care
for the office of vice-president of the united states congressman paul ryan of wisconsin. congressman ron has been the most forceful and articulate voice capitol hill for a vital but simple proposition, that we must balance our federal budget or we will face impending economic disaster. even as we come together here today to certify the results of this election, make no mistake that this is a political battle that this country will fight again. i for one hope that this is not the last time we will hear congressman ryan kos unnamed nominated in this chamber, but regardless of who the messenger thisan's name nominated in chamber, but regardless of who the messenger -- of with a messenger will be, we may face a catastrophe that neither side of the political aisle like to see. in conclusion, i am pleased to nominate congressman ryan of wisconsin or vice president, and i thank you for your time.

offered by senator ron wyden who is on the floor. senator wyden together with senator mark udall and senator lee, myself have joined in an amendment which would require the director of national intelligence to provide a report to congress that includes, among other things, information on whether any intelligence agency has ever attempted to search through communications selected to find the phone calls or emails of a specific american without a warrant. isn't this the kind of information that congress and the american people should have? senator wyden is a senior member of the intelligence committee. he's offering this amount because he's bun bern frustrated in his attempts to obtain basic information about the use of surveillance powers by our government authorized by the fisa amendments act. earlier this year senator wyden, senator mark udall asked the office of the director of national intelligence a fundamental question, how many americans have been subjected to surveillance under the fisa amendments act? the office of the director of national intelligence claimed it is not p
. i think it was stolen by massive voter fraud in the swing states. they totally snub ron paul and lost all those potential votes. that's my opinion and i hope we get rid of boehner. host: if it's not boehner, who would be the leader you would look for the speaker of the house? caller: i'd want to here what rush limbaugh or grover nor quist would say about that. host: grover said earlier in the week they did not consider this plan b to allow tax rates to rise for those making a million or more. that the americans for tax reform did not consider that going against the tax pledge. let's go to democratic caller. go ahead. caller: good evening sir. i'm an american citizen. i'm young. i'm only 24 and i've been watching c-span over the past few months. avend basically i'm going to get into saying something that we as american citizens, yes we have freedom of speech. but we have no right to publicly dishonor the president or the speaker of the house, whether they be democrat or republican, it doesn't matter. you have no right. you give them their respect and that's it. what i also wan
